Membrane‐associated ribosomes in producing and nonproducing mouse myeloma cells

William Cieplinski, M. D. Scharff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Mouse myeloma cell lines synthesize large amounts of immunoglobulin on their membrane‐associated polyribosomes. Variants which no longer synthesize immunoglobulins have been studied and shown to have the same number of tightly bound membrane‐associated polyribosomes as the parental cell lines. These polyribosomes are still active in the synthesis of nonimmunoglobulin proteins.
